Heather Nova
SEE YOURSELF

Dm

Dm Bb
Sister, all the ways I adore you,
C
Why can't you see yourself ?
Dm
Why can't you see yourself ?

Sister, shine a light on your grace and beauty, why can't you see yourself ? Why can't you ?

You were just a child holding tight, in those ocean swells, why can't you see yourself ?

Dm Bb
You think everybody else has got it made,
Am C
But can't you see we're all in pieces ?

F Dm
Cause when you're broken, then you're open,
Bb C
And when you're open, then you're living,
F Dm
And when you're living, you are light,
Bb C
And it's alright, and it's alright,
F
And it's alright.

You got knocked down, spinning out, salt got in your mouth.
Stung your eyes, I know it still matters, still hurting, feel it inside.

You think everybody else has got it made,
But can't you see we're all in pieces ?

Cause when you're broken, you are open,
And when you're open, then you're living,
And when you're living, you are a light, and it's alright, and it's alright.
Cause when you're broken, you are open,
And when you're open, then you're living,
And when you're living, you are a light (light), and it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

Cause when you're broken, you are open,
And when you're open (when you're open), then you're living (then you're living),
When you're light (light), it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

Cause when you're broken, you are light,
And it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright, it's alright.

REWILD ME

Fmaj7 Amsus2 x4

Fmaj7 Amsus2
I'm over the hate and I'm over the gate and I'm gone.
Fmaj7 Amsus2
Like a fox in the meadow, no one on my trail, I'm gone.

Fmaj7 Amsus2
Rewild my heart, let me be
Fmaj7 Amsus2
The sum of my parts, me.

Cause I'm over the blame and I'm over the shame and I'm gone.
Like a fox in the meadow, bright flash in the shadows, I'm gone.

Rewild my heart, let me find
My animal part, the divine.

F C G G
And I wanna feel wonder,
F C Em Em
And I wanna lie under the big trees,
F C Em F
And I wanna sink into the blue sea;
Am F C Em
Rewild me.

Am F C Em Am F C Em
Em

In the sweetness of nature, I'm free from the failures, I'm gone.
No slave to the longing, I'm one with belonging, I'm gone.
Am
Gone.
Am
Gone.
Am ~
Gone.

I saw it. It was nice, though, of course, not as spectacular as solar ones, but the sky was clear, so we saw it very well.

About DWWTES, I'd call it a diary song. It's a song that fits to what Heather had to say Vincent some times ago, and I guess it's very classical : a marriage breaking, and psy doctors finding a "logical" explanation to everything, for example his new (at that time) relationship with Heather. It's great that Heather wrote this song to answer him, and having songs like that writtent for him makes him a lucky guy, I' sure. It's very vute to communicate with songs and poetry. But the song, who's a very cute way to communicate, is not art. It's a song that probably had to be written for Heather Frith and Vincent Lions, but I don't see what makes it find a deseved place on Heather Nova album. The music is boring, the lyrics are not original at all, nor poetic.

How I wish it had been replaced by Rose Gold.

Rewild Me, Some Things Just Come Undone and See Yourself seem to make us all agree.

The song we skipt most often differ a bit more. For me, it's still Don't Worry What The Experts Say. Honestly, I "don't" see the point of this song.


Just like Gerd, I expect some songs to be really cool live. For example, I am eager to hear All The Rivers on tour, while on the ablum, I find it's an okay song, with very fine music, but lyrics a bit too plain in places.

That's what I said.

Berit will play lead guitar, so Vincent playing is not to be for granted, at all. Or as a bassist, but that would be surprising.

The bio on Vincent's website says he's born in France. The French lines make sense.

I used to play with a musician some times ago, and indeed, it gave the songs another dimension.

Well, in the future, maybe....

Thanks for the "dylanesque" ; it's a pleasure to be compared to such a guy !

... on a small acoustic tour, and acoustic guitar parts are easier than long, electruc, solos.

Well :
- the tour is anounced on Berit's agenda, so Berit will be lead guitar on the tour.
- if Berit is lead guitar, Vincent isn't (unless Heather does want two leads guitar, which doesn't really make sense)
- either Vincent will play someting else, or he won't play in this tour.

Vincent maybe won't play in the shows. Recording is something, and Vincent did it great, but you can mess up and start again, things like that. I am not sure Vincent feels comfortable enough to play live, with other musicians, when any wrong note, any error, will affect the whole band.

There will be a bassist, probably Arnulf, who can play other intruments, which is always useful.

Everytime

Storm
One Day In June
Aquamarine

Fool For You

(almost equality)
Let's Not Talk About Love
All I Need
You Left Me A Song
River Of Life
Drink It In

------------

I Wanna Be Your Light

There's something strange about Storm : apart from I Wanna be Your light, I like all the songs, but if I listen the whole album, I enjoy it but not THAT much. I guess it has too much echo and high-pitches instruments and voice, which kind of gives me headache (I'm very sensitive to sounds, and high-pitched ones).

Spread the songs into two albums with other songs less high-pitched in between, and I'll enjoy them twice more.

There's something tiring something tiring for my ears in the album sounds. The arrangements. Too much echo, too much high notes and sounds, i don't know.

It was fin writing it.

In the series, when she steps to the fire, naked, beautiful, gracious, she has perfect body.

Actually, she should have a hanging postpartum belly, straws on it, leaving blood drops where she walks, and probably walk less graciously and/or have a tired face...

My Pearl album won't arrive soon.

I am listening to the songs on Amazon music.
If I manage to download them, I'll bring them on holidays to tab them there next week.

Yeah, Sea Glass has a great break.

I could be ok with your interpretation for Stay if Heather was careful not overusing this structure. For, me Heather uses this structure in Stay chorus just because she uses it all the time. .

Let's say that when I hear C G Am F, it's like when you hear desire / fire : the first poem who put the words together had a really good idea, but when it's the 100th time, well, let's calm down with it.

When I hear a chord structure or a melody overheard, it does to more or less the same feeling you'll feel when you meet an overused rhyme or image : you're noticing it, and you know that's easy ; once in a while, well, that's life, but more often is too often.

1- The Archaeologist, Sleeping Dogs
3- On My Radar, Women's Hand
5- Serengeti
6- I'm Air
7- Moon River Days (by the time the album came out, it was Moon River Days at home
8- Treehouse
9- Sea Glass - lyrics would put it higher, but the global song sound doesn't convince me)
10- Sea Change very nice, but a bit repetitive

11- Lie Down In The Bed You've Made
12- Girl on the Mountain

13- This Humanness

Tough job ; this album is really one of my favourites and I really like songs 1 to 10. I appreciate the 3 others as well, but a bit less. This Humanness is the only one I tend to skip often.

4- Burning To Love
3- Stay

5- I'd Rather Be
6- The Good Ship Moon
7- Save A Little Piece Of Tomorrow


Then, the tracks I always skip :

8- Turn The Compass Round (i liked the acoustic version, but I'm not at all into album arrangements)
9- Higher Ground
10- Beautiful Ride
11 and 12- Stop The Fire, Until The Race Is Run, maybe my two less favourite songs from Heather.

300 Days At Sea is my less favourite album.

You are native English speaker and a poet. A song will be saved if the ryhymes are really good, or the images evocative, even if you don't like the music much. A song musically good won't find its way u to you if the lyrics are plain.

I'm non-native English speaker, which makes that, at SOME point, lyrics just ok but not much will be enough to me if the music is ok too. But In JUST can't stand anymore some chords structures (especially) the C G Am F chords structure, which is and absolute easy structure (when you use it, you get automatically a catchy melody) and that Heather uses too much, especially on 300 Days. It's easy, and not original. One song on the album, well, ok, but more, not.
On TWIF, if I remember right, only Radar has this structure, and it's fine, because it's just one song, so I'm not under the impression to hear always the same kind of melody.

There's at least 8 songs I like very very much.


Damn, I was young.

1- Beautiful Storm
2- Out In New Mexdico (which is actually better than Beautiful Storm, but it's by hearing the first notes of Beautiful Storm that I fell in love with the album, so...)
3- Follow Me In Grace

4- Hollow
5- If I Should Die - almost the whole song in great, but the melody is weak or weird at some -small - moment
6- Looking For The Light

7- Say Something
8- Ride - it's a good song, but I got tired of it, for it's playing live more often than other songs from this album that would deserve to be played more often
9- Every Soldier is A Mother's Son
10- Out Of A Limb
11- Maybe Tomorrow - it's not that bad, but i got tired of it
12- Always Christmas. Meh.
